'American Moments: Photographs from The Phillips Collection' June 16- Sept. 13

June 15, 2015

In celebration of recent major gifts, The Phillips Collection presents for the first time a major photography exhibition drawn exclusively from the museum’s permanent collection. American Moments: Photographs from The Phillips Collection features more than 130 photographs by 33 artists that showcase the strength and variety of the museum’s fast-growing photography collection through examples of Modernism, street photography, documentary expression, and photojournalism.

These remarkable new additions guide the broad themes of the exhibition. The city became one of America’s most potent symbols after World War I, and photographs by Berenice Abbott, Margaret Bourke-White, Lewis Hine, Clarence John Laughlin, and Paul Strand, among others, capture its sense of wonder.

The exhibition highlights photographs of urban and rural scenes taken on travels across America for the federal government, as magazine commissions, and as private work. 

The Phillips Collection is located at 1600 21st Street NW.
